Don't worry about what we all think.. personally, I applaud people that are willing to think outside the box, and try new techniques..
In my opinion, from what I've read about seating checks on plain based boolits... I'd much rather spend 50-75 bucks, max, on a new, gaschecked mold, and just shoot the plain based ones as plain based ones. Sounds like you may have come to the same conclusion?
Experimenting is FUN, though. I've tried some pretty goofy stuff, myself, but we won't talk about that here..
